[PODCAST] The rise of digital freight matching and the value of integrations

newtrul CEO, Ed Stockman appears on FreightWaves' trucker podcast "stackd" to discuss the rise of digital freight matching, freight aggregation, and the value of integrations between digital tools and larger execution platforms, like TMS, to save time, reduce costs, and gain market share. 

Ed joins host Adam Robinson, VP of Product Marketing at FreightWaves. Listen to or watch the episode at the bottom using the respective players.

You'll hear Ed answer the following questions:

  • How does Ed define the industry question: “what is digital freight matching?”
  • Is newtrul a digital freight matching platform? Why or why not?
  • Why are we seeing the rise of these types of platforms?
  • Load boards have been around for years, what’s the difference between what newtrul is, or any other digital freight matching platform, and a load board?
  • What is “meaningful carrier density” and why is that really the phrase the industry should focus on when it comes to building out their carrier network to consistently find capacity?
  • Why did newtrul about an integration strategy early on and is this how all freight technology companies should be thinking moving forward?
  • Is there a point where automation isn’t always necessary and human execution is still critical? Does automation have its place, and where is that?
  • What’s next beyond digital freight enablement tools? What will the future look like in say a year from now when the market is data-rich, automate, and hyper-efficient? Will we all no longer need to solve anything?
